We ate the salt baked fresh fish on the waiters recommendation. It was not cheap but very good. And the view from the terrace was very nice.

We were approached by a guy in the square who recommended this place. The starters were fine, as was the dessert. But the main course (mixed grill) was inedible. Overcooked, hard meat that was so badly cooked I could not identify what it was. And it was swimming in oil/grease. Why when you bring this to the attention of the... More

We wanted to eat in Altea, and met the waiter at the centre of Altea. He didn't show us a menu at first but told us that he had a good menu for kids and adults as well. The restaurant has a beautiful terrace and e lovely view. The ground floor is not a place to sit for dinner. The... More

As previously mentioned by a couple of reviews we were lured into the restaurant by a friendly and enthusiastic man on the main square. We had deliberately made a point of asking if they served pasta/pizza/burgers or something suitable for children, and we were assured there were these options for a very reasonable price of around €8. Once we had... More

We ate here on a busy Friday night and had a table on the terrace. The tables were a little cramped together but the view was lovely. Waiting staff were attentive and very courteous. The menu was ok, but very little of the tapas and paella we had been promised by the tout in the square who recommended it to... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat lunch and as there a little rain in the air places were at premium. This was about the 6th place we had tried and were just happy to get in somewhere. Nice little rooftop terrace, a very confident well spoken waiter, let us know that the BBQ lamb was just ready and was... More

Having read some of the other reviews it sounds like we were lucky. We too were lured in by the friendly chap in the square and chose to eat on the roof terrace. The view of the harbour is very good, but the terrace is a bit cramped. The waiters were very good, they engaged with us all very well,... More

Like many others who have reviewed this place, we were lured in by a man at the square. The promise of tapas and traditional Spanish food seemed really nice. The menu however only had pricey starters that they called tapas. We ordered the cheese and ham(which in all fairness was nice) two types of potatoes and the lamb chops The... More
